Wisconsin's Poet Laureate Visits the Weyenberg Library as our Communities Read Author for 2014

Max Garland of Eau Claire is the Wisconsin Poet Laureate for 2013-2014 and our Communities Read author for 2014. Garland left a ten-year career as a mail carrier to pursue his love of poetry.  His first collection, The Postal Confessions, earned him the prestigious Juniper Prize for Poetry. Garland chronicles his years carrying the mail in a classic American voice, discovering deeply felt significance within everyday experiences often drawn from the lives of the folks who lived on his rural mail route.

As Wisconsin’s Poet Laureate, Garland hopes to “reach out to those who may feel alienated from the world of poetry (or art), and yet have deeply felt experiences to record and honor…. [P]oetry is still a means of expression open to everyone.  It’s one of those things that’s just too important to be left to experts.”
